Third grade will be sponsoring a family for Christmas. You may wish to purchase something for one of the children. We have a wish list of some items they need and would like for Christmas. You can view a sign up by clicking here to see what items have already been sent in and sign up for something. If you would like to purchase a specific item off the list, please sign up or feel free to send me a quick note and I will reserve that item for you. Please send all items into school unwrapped by Dec. 7th.
Any money that is collected will be compiled to purchase remaining items off their wish lists. Thank you for helping to make this a merry Christmas for this family and and for allowing our third graders to learn how good it feels to help someone in need.
The theme for Red Ribbon Week was “Your Future is key. Be Drug Free!” The students showed their commitment to being drug free by participating in a variety of spirit days. Check out the slide show!

Fire Prevention Day on PhotoPeach
On October 16, the Bowmansville Fire Company came to Brecknock Elementary for the annual Fire Safety Awareness. The students were acquainted with the tools on the fire truck and ambulance. They got to feel first hand how heavy the fire hose is without water. The students also reviewed how to dial 911 for emergencies. All the students received a fire hat and Fire Safety activity booklet.
We are off to a great start to the school year! The students did remarkably well remembering Brecknock’s School Rules as well as learning new routines. Most of our days were spent getting to know one another and becoming familiar with the classroom and expectations. Some of the activities are hanging in the hallway, so be on the look-out when you come to “Back to School Night” on September 7. I am looking forward to seeing you there!
Are you ready for school on Monday? Have you done your back to school shopping? Remember all you need to bring are some pencils and maybe a pair of scissors. If you have other school supplies in your backpack, I will help you decide what to keep at school and what to take home. You may also bring a small souvenir or picture if you would like to share something about your summer. I am so excited to see your familiar faces!
FYI- The lunch choices on Monday are popcorn chicken or pizza.
At Brecknock the third grade teachers work as a team. To ensure success and a great year for all students, we have created a survey to help us get to know you and your child. All teachers will be able to access your responses.
Please take a few minutes to complete the Third Grade Welcome Back Survey.
